Chef Tom Brown, who operates the much-lauded Cornerstone in Hackney Wick, will team up with Hawksmoor founder Richard H Turner to collaborate on the ultimate Surf ‘n’ Turf menu.
The chefs will be cooking up a storm at Turner’s latest restaurant Gridiron in Mayfair, as part of the second instalment of the Gridiron Guests dinner series. Taking place on Monday 1 July, the acclaimed pairing will create an exclusive four-course menu of carnivorous delights, with featured dishes including the likes of grilled bone marrow with scrambled egg and caviar, crab crumpet rarebit with Worcester sauce, and chargrilled prime rib of beef with H.P sauce and Madeira gravy.

To accompany the food, Gridiron has also created what might be London’s most luxurious cocktail. The decadent Caviar Truffle Martini combines End of Austerity by Rebel Rabbet (an organic grain spirit made from vacuum distilled beluga caviar and white truffle), with a coffee liqueur, miso and clear milk blend, plus Exmoor caviar oil and a fine vermouth. The cocktail is priced at £16 and will be available on Gridiron’s menu throughout July.
The Caviar Truffle Martini
Tickets for this one-off collaboration between Tom Brown and Richard H Turner are priced at £75 per head, and there is also a Chef’s Table, available to book for up to eight guests, as well as a Kitchen Counter Experience, which includes the Caviar Truffle Martini and a signed apron for £100. A wine pairing will also be available for an added cost of £45 per person.
